Control Is God’s

by J. Randal Matheny © 2015

Control is God’s. Over all creation, his sway.
But we can change our destinies
And, by the gospel’s power,
Save many souls.
Let no saint shrink nor cower,
Nor doubt God hears men on their knees —
He moves the mountains for those who work and pray.


A different metrical scheme here, narrowing to the center line and then widening out again, giving emphasis to the fourth line.

No image today, sorry. I’m on the run, at the Iuka congregation’s building for Internet. Off again tomorrow early, to swap out rental cars, so we can move around as we stay in the US a bit longer. Then day after next, on the road again.

I pray you be blessed by this short piece today, a quick reminder of God’s sovereignty and our responsibility.
